The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because
when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all
the books that would occupy the building.

1. Who was Jimmy Carter's V.P. ?
2. Who's Studio gave us the Silly Symphonies ?
3. Who won the Battle of Hastings ?
4. What's the herb in Pesto ?
5. Who is the Patron Saint of Children ?
6. Wimbledon Champion (1946) Yvon Petra was from what country ?
7. Which country's principal river is the Po ?
8. What does "Saute'" translate to, more or less ?
The blood-stained, sweat-drenched undershirt worn by Bruce Willis in Die Hard sits in a display case in the Smithsonian Institution.

2. Disney's
3. William of Normandy
4. Basil
